Disney Infinity 3 Star Wars

Disney Infinity has become the gaming destination for nearly everything Disney. Avalanche Software’s first two installments put Disney, Pixar, and Marvel characters under one roof in story-based and freeform experiences. Now it’s time for Disney to give the Star Wars brand its due – Luke, Leia, Anakin, and more are joining the family with Disney Infinity 3.0, and we’ve got all the details in our mega-sized 16-page cover story.

Star Wars fandom is often divided between the two trilogies, and Disney Infinity 3.0 is catering to both audiences. Avalanche returns at the head of development while recruiting other studios to work on specific packs and systems. Ninja Theory’s (Devil May Cry, Heavenly Sword) pack-in playset, Twilight of the Republic, follows Anakin and Ahsoka as they fight to uncover who’s behind a freshly minted droid army. The story is set after Star Wars: Episode II, and it features land and space battles with plenty of melee combat. Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Darth Maul can enter the fray, too, as separately sold figures. Studio Gobo’s (Disney Infinity’s Pirates of the Caribbean playset) Rise Against the Empire is a highlight reel of sorts that follows the events of the classic trilogy. Luke and Leia tangle with Darth Vader and his forces through memorable sequences, including the battle of Yavin as well as time on Hoth and Tatooine. Chewbacca, Han Solo, and Darth Vader figures will be available individually. Star Wars characters can cross over between the Star Wars playsets, too, which could lead to some canonically unsound (but fun) scenarios.

Disney Infinity 3.0 isn’t just tossing in a wookiee and a few new playsets and calling it a day, either. Avalanche has reexamined fundamental parts of its core game and is working with best-in-class developers to ensure that Infinity is as good as it can be. Ninja Theory has retuned melee combat, adjusting the timing and adding depth for advanced players. After all, you want to feel powerful when you’re wielding a light saber. Sumo Digital (Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing) has taken Infinity’s driving gameplay to the shop, tweaking the handling and drifting to provide a smoother experience. That’s key, considering one of the new Toy Box games is a kart racer. Those tweaks carry over into the Toy Box, which means legacy characters like Hulk and Mr. Incredible benefit as well.

Another Star Wars playset is coming this winter based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There are also sets based on Pixar’s Inside Out – with figures based on Joy, Disgust, Anger, Fear, and Sadness – and one from United Front Games (Sleeping Dogs) focused on Marvel characters including Hulkbuster Iron Man, Ultron, and more. Additional figures for Disney Infinity 3.0 include Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron: Legacy, Mulan, Olaf, and more. The Toy Box is getting special attention, too, with the addition of an updated hub world, toys for new players and experts, and the addition of an all-new farming system. May the pitchforks be with you.

We’ve got the behind-the-scenes story on every facet of the game’s development, and you’re only going to read about it in Game Informer’s June issue. Disney Infinity 3.0 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, iOS, and Android this fall. The Starter Pack is priced at $64.99. A new batch of Power Discs are also coming, with a twist: They won’t be in blind bags anymore. You can see what you’re getting before you buy them.

Yesterday Dice revealed a new location for Star Wars: Battlefront in the shape of Sallust, a barren planet with snow, ice and volcanic lava.
StarWars Battlefront

Battlefront will ship with 12 different multiplayer maps, although there are more if you count those within the Battlefront missions. Not every map will support every mode, so you may not get to play them all in your favourite mode, whatever that may be.

Battlefront is out this November one game I can’t wait to play later this year.

The new Star Wars Battlefront will take place amid the conflicts of the original film trilogy and is scheduled for release 17th November for the US and the 20th November for the UK and the 19th November for Europe for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Star Wars “Battlefront” will focus on frenzied shoot-outs between up to 40 players portraying Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire forces. It seems the site was even shown a demonstration of the game’s multiplayer mode, from which it describes “a team of jetpack-equipped rebels shown carving their way through the woodsy Endor while Stormtroopers charged at them on foot, on speeders and within walkers, including a hulking AT-AT war machine.

Star Wars Battlefront 1

The new game footage played today included the snowy Hoth, sandy Tatooine and gooey Sullust, a lava-spewing planet referenced in 1983’s “Return of the Jedi,” as well as many “Star Wars” games and novels.

This is from the in-game engine from the PlayStation 4 version

In Star Wars Battlefront won’t solely be centred on expendable ground troops, but will also allow you to play as the likes of Boba Fett and Darth Vader on the battlefield.

Star Wars Battlefront 4

In the game can storm in as the Dark Lord himself, You can wield a lightsaber. You can Force choke the rebel scum. Basically, you are the boss of the battle. This means that you, as Vader, can lead your team to victory if you play well.

The most exciting part for us is that you’ll be able to take part in dogfights with TIE Fighters, X-wings and the Millennium Falcon.

You can get into these vehicles, from speeder bikes to X-wings, TIE fighters, AT-STs, AT-ATs. There’s a wide range of vehicles that we wanted to realize.

Star Wars Battlefront 6

The difficulty with a game is that they need to be balanced with the troops on the ground.

Of course, with a certain Star Wars movie set to release a month after Battlefront’s release, DICE is also being given special content related to it. The Battle of Jakku, the key battle with Imperial holdouts that takes place in the immediate aftermath of “Return of the Jedi,” will be added to Battlefront as free DLC.

Players will get to see Jakku as it was before they see it as it eventually becomes in this December’s “The Force Awakens.” Those that own Star Wars Battlefront will be able to pick this DLC up free of charge on 8th December. Anyone that takes the plunge and pre-orders will be able to pick it up a week early on 1st December.

Star Wars Battlefront 5

The forthcoming “Battlefront,” is part of a 10-year deal between the Walt Disney Co. and Electronic Arts to create new “Star Wars” games.
